July 8, 2012 journal

The carnation seedlings that were started at the beginning of June were transplanted to larger pots today, though they hardly needed to be transplanted, as the root systems are still rather undeveloped.  As carnations are slow growing plants, I decided to give them as much light as possible, so I will move them from the tent indoors, to the greenhouse, giving them as much light as possible.

Courtesy of 2BSeeds, where I purchased the seeds, I have included some information on Carnations below:
 Dianthus - caryophullus
Throughout so many centuries of change, the popularity of the carnation has remained undiminished. The fact that the carnation continues to endure is a testament to its vast appeal. To this day, carnations remain a favorite flower choice for many different occasions. They are immediately recognizable flowers, and they possess a charm and allure that continues to captivate people around the globe. In fact, in many parts of the world, the popularity of carnations surpasses that of any other flower including roses. The powerful sentiments these flowers can express are a perfect compliment to their classic beauty and long-lasting freshness. By retaining its status as a floral mainstay for such a long time, the carnation has proven itself to be a lasting flower in more ways than one.

I am seriously thinking of growing more unusual flowers indoors this winter to add more challenge to indoor hydroponic gardening.
